Product description

Product Description

The last 12 episodes from the first series of this sci-fi television series starring Vincent Ventresca as Darien Fawkes who is given the chance of avoiding a life behind bars through his brother Kevin's experiment into invisibility. By taking part in the experiment he also has to join the mysterious Agency, and once he has the 'quicksilver gland' implanted in his head events make it impossible to remove. Thus the adventures begin, with Darien having the ability to turn himself, objects and other people invisible. The episodes are: 'Reunion', 'Cat and Mouse', 'Beholder', 'Ghost of Chance', 'Flowers For Hobbes', 'Perchance to Dream', 'Frozen in Time', 'Diseased', 'The Lesser Evil', 'Money For Nothing: Parts 1 and 2' and 'It's a Small World'.


The Invisible Man continued its first year in increasingly tense and cryptic fashion. Anti-hero Darien has to keep up his spying gig in order to be fed an antidote to the side effects of the invisibility gland. Unfortunately it isn't working. The clock is ticking all the way to a tense finale, where the Quicksilver insanity threatens to consume him whole. There's lots of fun with the format on the way, of course. Darien encounters a ghost, a sperm thief and a hitman who likes to blind his witnesses. Some grander political backdrop comes to the fore as well, with the Chinese government seeking surreptitiously to obtain the gland. All the while there's a growing sense that the Agency has troubles of its own. In an unprecedented bit of audience participation, viewers were allowed to vote for the resolution of a story entitled "Money for Nothing". Fans went for the more interesting option, thankfully, and so an invisible bank raid pays off nicely for everyone. Creating constant conflict throughout the year is the lurking presence of arch-enemy Arnaud. The immediate resolution of that conflict is one of several surprise twists that singled out the show as more than standard TV SF fare. Not even a so-so cameo from Star Trek's Wil Wheaton could spoil the fun.

On the DVD: The Invisible Man's second box set features even more extras than the first DVD set. Two cast commentaries are frequently comic, though with a constant sense of disappointment the show didn't go further than two series. There are lengthy interviews with the cast, too. But of real interest to fans will be alternate footage previously unseen in the UK. Some FX shots and script pages round out the package. --Paul Tonks
